Who are your favourite monsters?

To close the inaugural Blogger Book Fair, I asked readers and writers, who their favourite monsters were. Here’s what you said:

The Abominable Snowman. I have such great memories of watching that show. When we were young, my sister and I used to hide behind the olive-colored rocking chair when the Abominable Snowman came on the screen. Now, of course, I know him as the lovable character he is! – Pam Stucky, author of the Wishing Rock series

Voldemort, without a doubt. I love his backstory. – H. Suthard

For me, it has to be the huge bronze statue that comes alive in Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts. No, correct that — make it ALL of the monsters in Jason and the Argonauts. – Tony Richards, author of such novels as The Harvest BridePostcards from Terri, and more recently Night of Demons

Kalessin: The eldest dragon from Le Guin’s The Farthest Shore (Earthsea trilogy). This is not a dragon a knight could slay, and human concepts of good and evil really don’t apply to it. Fortunately, to it humans are generally such inconsequential and short-lived creatures that we normally don’t have to spend time worrying about it. – Writer at E-Bookworm.

Mothra: Because the Mothra girls crack me up. – Joel Arnold, author of Northwoods Deep

The Fury from the old Captain Britain comics of the 1980s. – Cora Buhlert, author

Gamera, the giant flying turtle. – Todd Young

Cthulu. Any Lovecraft monster, in fact. Most of them were similar and all of them were terrifying. They weren’t your typical monsters that’d eat or just kill you, oh no. They did much, much worse things than kill you. – Tyler J. Vitt, author
